Perfect Christmas Gifts For Older People

Many people find it difficult buying for older relatives, often because their choices are often narrowed to the old tried and trusted slippers, gloves or cardigan for fear of getting it wrong. This year, why not give them something to make them really smile and even give them some much needed fun! 

Just as we love to buy toys for children and can imagine them laughing and giggling as they merrily tear off the wrapping paper, why shouldn’t we want to do the same for those in later years?  Many us play it safe by going for the ‘something useful’ option but how would we feel if all we ever got were socks, bath salts or winter woollies?

Keeping Active Gifts For Older People

Here at Activities to Share, we have a huge range of products especially designed for older people who are young at heart, like our Giant Inflatable Hoopla game – guaranteed to raise a laugh and good for gentle exercise too! This is just one of a range of inflatable games we offer that can even be played sitting down for anyone who is disabled or unable to stand. 

Golfing enthusiasts will love our Golf Putting Mat; complete with fabric ‘green’, integral ‘sand pit’ and ‘water hazard’, short club and 6 balls, your game will never be rained off! Why not have an indoor family competition for added Christmas fun! 

If you want something more challenging then take a look at our Chair Crazy Golf set. Made from sturdy wood with 2 x putters, 2 balls and 6 obstacles, this will make a great Christmas present for those difficult-to-choose-for men.
